Since they had booked their wedding online after phone conversations, we met Jenny and John for the first time in person at their engagement session at Bok Tower Gardens in Lake Wales. (Well, first we passed each other at the garden’s visitor’s center not knowing who each other was, but then we found each other about 20 min later for proper introductions and all was good!) What struck us the most about this super awesome couple was their laughter! Their smiles didn’t fade once during their whole session…..their happiness was contagious! It’s so apparent that they love spending time with each other and they make each other SO happy. Seriously, how cute is Jenny!? I love her laugh! And the way John looks at Jenny is so loving and sweet, it’s no wonder he stole her heart!
We started off in the orange grove at Pinewood Estate and then made our way to a gorgeous field with an amazing sunset view, Bok Tower in the background. What a perfect way to end our photo shoot! We can’t wait to return there to make more memories with Jenny and John on their wedding day this October. Congratulations, you guys!!
We’ve already posted their Oxford Exchange wedding photos, but we wanted to share a few from Dana and Nat’s engagement session, as well! These two were just meant to be. A local matchmaking service brought them together, but their deep love of learning mixed with their self-proclaimed nerdiness and a huge helping of respect and love for each other is what has kept them together. Watching Nat’s face light up when he’s around Dana is heartwarming to see, and the way these two have fun with each other brings a smile to my face! They chose downtown Tampa by the Hillsborough River for their engagement session, and we spent an easy evening together capturing some pretty sweet moments. Enjoy!
Just a little sneak peek for Kelly & Neill! Their wedding at the Sandpearl Resort was full of laughter, joy, sweet moments and….rain! (But more about that later!) We also had plenty of beautiful Florida sunshine…yay! Congratulations, you two, I’m sooo happy to have been a part of your amazing wedding day!
I had such a lovely time at Dana and Nat’s Oxford Exchange wedding last month! Their literary themed wedding was one for the books (haha!) and totally fit their personalities. I kind of feel like the Oxford Exchange can draw out that excitement in adults that kids feel when walking into the Magic Kingdom (although don’t get me wrong…Disney World is magical at any age!) With the pretty, colorfully-bound books, knick knacks and curiosities peeking out from every corner, textures and colors colliding and then somehow making perfect sense, and then the smells….ahhh….the delicious smell of freshly brewed coffee winds its way around you and you have truly found a place you could live in forever! This is the magical place that Dana and Nat knew would be perfect for saying their vows . Surrounded by the books they love and the people they love more, their ceremony was truly unique and beautiful. Congratulations, Dana & Nat!! Wishing you a lifetime of laughter, learning and love!

I can’t think of a single thing that’s not to LOVE about this beautiful couple! Fun, super smart, gorgeous, and full of vibrant personality, Monica & Logan are the type of couple you can’t help but want to be friends with! Monica rocked each and every outfit she chose for their engagement session, killing it wearing her signature lip color, Backstage Bambi by Kat Von D! And dare we say how handsome Logan looked in his full tuxedo?? These two are sizzling, no doubt about it!
We started at their South Tampa home, made our way past Bayshore Blvd and ended up in downtown Tampa for a few night shots against the skyline. So awesome!! Just have to mention the importance of Bayshore to them…it was where they held their first running “date,” and where, two years later, Logan proposed on bended knee as he pretended to go down for a stretch: “We’ve been running for the past two years, lets run together for the rest of our lives.” SO SWEET!!!
And check it out! Logan was a groomsman in Lauren & John’s wedding back in April, and John will be a groomsman in Monica and Logan’s wedding TOMORROW!! Here’s Monica and Logan rocking out on the dance floor!
CONGRATULATIONS, Monica and Logan!!! We are soooo happy for you guys….Long live MoLo!!!!!
